Thanks for alerting us of this problem!

There was indeed at least one bug in the code for producing Torrents, specifically triggered to the case of a given item being "derived" by us.

I will introduce a fix today andre-create the Torrent file for the two texts mentioned, and verify that they work. When I do so, I will confirm that in a reply here.

(The bug that I fixed is specific to items that were updated in some fashion over this past weekend.)

Thanks again and please let us know about any other problems!

I believe the Torrent available here:

http://archive.org/details/dickens200_vol5_1207_librivox

For the Dickens collection is now correct. Please discard the old Torrent, as it contains incorrect information (webseeds on where to locate the item on our servers if there are no peers available).

The new version should complete download using webseeding. (Torrent information was inspected directly, and download with current uTorrent on MacOS X completed successfully)

Please let us know if it doesn't work for you!

There may be other affected items in the Librivox collection, I will be working over the next day or two to find and update them. :)

Thank you again for bringing this to our attention!

Just tried the Dickens item with Vuze (Azureus) on a PC netbook. Worked like a charm.

Great! Thanks for the report, we hadn't tested with Vuze yet!
